Mutahid (meaning United in local language) Development Finance Institution (MUTAHID) was established in April 2011 in an effort to create one larger, stronger and sustainable, best practice MFI based on the core principles of ethics, ideas, and hard work by initially transferring good clients, quality staff and loan portfolio of six MFIs which were exiting the Afghan microfinance sector.
Mutahid currently employs over 270 staff, serving over 15,000 clients through eight branches in six provinces of Afghanistan. Mutahid offers microfinance group and individual loans, Islamic products, and SME loans, managing a portfolio of over USD 7 million with the potential to grow further.
Microfinance Investment Support Facility for Afghanistan (MISFA) is supporting MUTAHID directly by providing direction, capacity building and financial resources and while a division of MISFA is run as a separate autonomous operating entity.
Mutahid is looking a Chief Operating Officer (COO) to manage the day-to-day operations and help the organization to achieve the strategic goals set by the Board.
